them by personal testing. Appearing in connection with the Fair

by this medium, to invite our friends and the public to attend that 
gathering, where they will find an attractive display of goods, and an 
entertainment each evening. 

We also take pleasure in recommending the business firms who 
have chosen this medium in which to advertise their wares, to the 
generous patronage of all. The thanks of the ladies they have so 
kindly assisted is most cheerfully extended, while the advertising 
agents will ever remember the uniform courtesy and patronage given 
them in their work.

A Letter of Great Interest to the Public. 

Allan Royal Mail Steamship, ApriJ 8, 1882. 
H. D. HUGGAN & CO., Chemists, East Boston, Mass., U.S.A. 

Dear Sirs : — I take the liberty of writing you in reference to your Compound Eel Oi' 
Liniment. After using it for a number of months constantly and perseveringly on per 
sistent cases of rheumatism, neuralgia, pains of the bones, etc., on sailors and othei 
members of the ship's crew exposed to the boisterous weather crossing the wcsten 
ocean, I can confidently recommend it to all who suffer from those affections, or who 
are liable to be affected with them on the least change of weather, and that the} 
should commence to use it whenever they feel the first twinge of pain, for it is thei 
that the disease can be caught and much suffering and s?eepless nights avoided. Tc 
my own knowledge it is in constant use now in all the large passenger ships crossing' 
the Atlantic, and the surgeons universally say that it is the best article in the market 
to-day for the diseases already enumerated. WILLIAM S. DONALD, M.D. 

Steamship Hibernian, April 8, 1882. (London University).

PERFECT BED, PERFECT 
LOUNGE NO MATRESS 
^NEEDED 




OPPOSITE BEACHiJ 

N. B. — This Lounge Bed has been exhibited at Fairs and adver- 
tised at large expense, resulting in a popular verdict in its favor. Be- 
ware of infringements and imitations. All our beds are labeled inside, 
Graves' Patent Improved Loung^e Bed. We furnish Par- 
lor Suits (including our Sofa Bed) in latest designs. 

Custom Make. Warranted. 

Please notice the following points : 

1. When closed, they are and appear just like a Sofa or Lounge. 

2. The back is put on strong like a Lounge. 

3. You can tuck in the bed clothes at the back. 

4. Room enough between the slats for bedclothes. 

5. When open, they are a nice bedstead, stronger than most bed- 
steads, and a complete spring bed. 

6. A firm bolster across the head end. 

7. A strong and easily adjusted foot board. 

8. Each of the 6 legs are fastened strong, and are on rollers, so 
you can roll the bed about the room. 

9. They have 34 to 42 full length Spiral Springs. 

10. The open bed is as high as a seat. 

11. They are not hard in the middle of the bed. 

12. We warrant the frames to be durable and the upholstering 
very thorough. 

13. We make to order extra long, wide, or thick. 

A Bedstead, Spring Mattress and Bolster cost $10. Graves' 
Lounge Bed is a better bed at $10. Thus the Lounge costs nothing, 
and the case is the same as the price advances, till at $35 you get 
equal to a nice finished Black Walnut Bedstead and best Curled Hair 
Mattress, on 43 Spiral Springs, that would cost $35, and so you have 
for no cost a large Parlor Sofa or J>ounge, with best curled hair seat^ 
and save rent of one room.

IF. 

If, gentle reader, you would learn to make, 

A first-class oyster stew, 
Go call on Mrs. Ryder, some fair day, 

And she will counsel you. 

If you would hear a wild and fearful tale, 

Of danger on the seas, 
'Tis told by Mrs. Adams, in a way 

That cannot fail to please. 

If you would see a silk quilt, beautiful 

And simple in design, 
I'm sure that Mrs. Noble will show hers ; 

She cannot well decline. 

If you've a thousand tickets you would sell, 

For any worthy cause. 
Seek help from Mrs. Gove, and she'll dispose 

Of them without a pause. 

If you would gain an invitation kind, 

To sail upon the sea. 
Ask Mrs. Porter. Mr. Porter's yacht 

Will at your service be. 

If you would learn to make delicious tarts, 

Flakey, and rich, and rare, 
Beg quiet Mrs. Morley for her rule, 

She'll not refuse your prayer. 

If you've a great rehearsal to conduct, 

And have no parlors large. 
Seek Mrs. Downing. All her house is yours, 

Quite free of any charge. 

If you would lessons take in classic lore, 

Latin and Greek and all, 
Miss Lizzie Downing will instruct you well, 

Don't be a fraid to call. 

If you would like to see a modern house. 

Stylish, and fresh, and new, 
Go visit Mrs. Bailey any day, 

And she will welcome you. 

If you would write in lines as musical 

And sweet as rippling rills, 
Take pen and paper to the parsonage, 

And learn of Mrs. Hills.

If you would know how the front seats in church 
Those farther back excel, 

Since Mrs. Tracey's change of pew, I think- 
That she could tell you well. 

If you would see a green and level lawn, 

Extensive, fresh and fair, 
You'll find one beautifying Monmouth Street, 

In Mrs. Fletcher's care. 

If you would learn to row with matchless skill, 

All up and down the bay, 
Perhaps Miss Rena Atwood will instruct 

Some calm and pleasant day. 

If you delight in Hawthorn's genius rare, 

And love to hear his praise, 
In Mrs. Shepard you will find a friend 

Who knows his works and ways. 

If you would learn about the mission-cause. 

No one can better tell 
Than Mrs. Phinney Every phase and form 

io her is known quite well. 

If you've a little child, and have no skill 

In making dresses gay. 
Ask Mrs. Allen. Pretty little gowns, 

She'll fashion any day. 

If, to preside at any meeting grand, 

Should one day be your fate, 
Mrs. McCausland well may show you how. 

With dignity and state. 

If you would see a dark-eyed baby-girl. 
Winsome, and fresh, and sweet, 

Mrs. Montgomery's little Alice rules 
At 91 Trenton Street. 

If you are not acquainted with the man 

Resembling our M. I)., 
Seek Mrs. Blanchard. She will introduce 

Her husband unto thee. 

If you have charge of tableaux, and you need 

A grandma grave and sweet, 
Put Mrs. Nelson Williams in costume, 

Your picture is complete.

If you would spend a pleasant afternoon, 

And laugh the hours away, 
Go visit Mrs. Hartford, you will wish 

That you might always stay. 

If you would know the legends of our church 

In days of long ago, 
Go hear them from the lips of Mrs. Howe, 

In accents faint and low. 

If you are choosing a committee, wise 

And energetic too, 
Add Mrs. Wood. With patience she will strive 

Always her part to do. 

If you're invited to a candy-pull, 

And you would like to know, 
How long to pull to make the candy light, 

To Mrs. Coltman go. 

If you would know a lady, generous 

And bountiful indeed. 
Be introduced some day to Mrs. Pease, 

And tell her all you need. 

If you are feeling rather out of sorts. 

And weary and depressed. 
Invite Miss Susie Mayo to your home, 

Her spirits are the best. 

If you would know how fair and beautiful 

Are Lynnfield's quiet dales. 
Miss Clara Robinson can well describe 

Its mountains and its vales. 

If you would hear a fair report and true. 

Of camp meeting this year, 
I think that Mrs. Chandler can describe 

Its glory and good cheer. 

If you have never seen old Salisbury town, 

And wish to visit there, 
Ask Mrs. French to let you go with her 

And breathe its quiet air. 

If you would like to know how great a pain 

Small hnger-felons cause, 
I'm sure that Mrs. Towle could tell you well 

Without a moments pause.

YE MALES. 

For " firstly" our pastor we mention, 
Please give to his sermon attention ; 

We also might state his name, Hills ; 
Then our financial brother, E. Langell, 
Appears on our list. He's an angel 

For working and paying our bills. 

We now are expected to handle a 
Class leader, our brother Chandler, 

Stalwart of camp-meeting fame. 
Then, also, our Western friend. Noble. 
Who rhymes, you will notice, with trouble, 

Noble by nature and name. 

And our black whiskered brother, Montgomery, 
Who when put on a committee helps form a re- 
ally successful affair every way. 
With the name of our friend. Silas Porter, 
We cannot find rhyme as we " orter" 
Bui for all that report him "O.K." 

We welcome our cjuiet friend. Coltman, 
The' one you should never assault, man, 

For the size of his biceps is known. 
Then strong in conviction, our Ryder, 
A temperance man, even to cider. 

And our genial friend, Samuel Doane. 

Then we advertise freely our Downing, 
Contractor, we trust he's not frowning. 

And agree not to rhyme him again. 
Here appears too the broad shouldered Hart- 
Ford, whose name will rhyme only in part ; 

And the boat-racing muscular Crane. 

Then follows a Steward, our Afwood ; 
We cannot find any phrase that would 

Do justice to him or our Gove. 
The former attends to finances ; 
The latter our pleasure enhances. 

For HE let us rhyme him with " stove," 

Young ladies fjust finished at Madam's). 
Say " de trap," so we of our Adams, 

When we find but one rhyme, we can try; 
We advise him take warning in season. 
Next time choose a name within reason. 

Like that of our brother, James Nye; 

A man always willing to render 
Assistance. We lastly extend a 

Greeting to Samuel Wood, 
A brother with jokes always ready. 
But with age will improve and grow steady, 

And, we trust, will reform and be good.
